    Mediocre at Best

    by (43 reviews) , United States Flag of United States

    This hotel, far from representing the top of the hotel chain, was more like a Super 8. The hallways and public areas have been allowed to deteriorate badly; my first reaction upon entering the hallway with our bags was "This place is a dump!" The rooms (at least ours) are in better condition and perfectly satisfactory. The service, however, is poor. Despite our hanging up towels to participate in the conservation program, housekeeping took the towels, and they did not replace them. I called down at 4:30 asking for towels and was assured that some would be brought up, but when we returned to the hotel later, I discovered that there were still no towels. As we needed to shower at 5 a.m., I had to go down and get them immediately. The young lady at the desk was very nice and she got me the towels, but she should not have had to. Housekeeping did not clean the shower while we were there. The location is great, but this hotel is not of the caliber one would expect from the name. I suggest you find somewhere else if you are looking for a high quality hotel.

    Better then I expected!


    Purchased the room on the internet, then after reading some reviews, we were nervous, but figured for the price we paid, we could afford to walk out and go somewhere else. The staff were very friendly, nice and eager to please. The room was clean as any of the other hotels where we had stayed on this vacation. Also the rooms had been remodeled recently. However, the hotel is old, the resturant was not in opperation that evening, but they shuttled us to a very nice resturant not very far away. All in all for the price we paid, our experience was fine.

    Loved the LE BARON


    I booked this hotel online and then read all these reviews.but don't believe everything you read. we got there and everything was wonderful. the hot tub was awesome. the pool a little cold for my blood. the rooms were just as good as any other hotel. the staff was excellent. the only complaint was i kepy losing my money inthe coke machine, which they refunded. i would stay here again any time. It was wonderful. these people who were unhappy were from another planet. stay here it is worth it!

    Less than Expected


    Booked the hotel online. The lobby was a true representation, but the rooms were lacking. We just wanted a cool room and a quite place to sleep. The 1st room's A/C stopped working within 30 minutes. The 4th room finally had a working A/C. But after about an hour the noise and racket from the unit made it impossible to sleep, and we travel with ear plugs! We will not be staying again, nor should you.

    Nice Older Hotel!


    This is an older hotel just west of downtown Colorado Springs in an older neighborhood. The staff was VERY friendly going out of their way to please us. Being an older property, it had a few issues but evidence of remodeling work was apparent. There is an onsite restaurant with a very limited menu.

    One big concern I had was security and safety. The last night we were there, I was looking for something out of my vehicle in the dark parking lot. I was approached by 2 people trying to pan handle some money. Fortunately, they went on their way but given the darkness and no barrier between the street and neighborhood, it could easily have gone bad.

    What a dump! Do not stay there.


    What a DUMP of a hotel, this hotel should be closed or bulldozed. The overall appearance of this hotel, I would never recommend or ever stay there again. In otherwords don't waste your money!

    We have been under renovation since March of this year. All our guest room balconeys have been remodeled along with our second and third floor guest corridors. The parking lot has been resurfaced and we remodeled our lounge by adding seven new television monitors and furniture. These projects along with many others are scheduled to be completed by mid June. We are truly sorry you have experienced the inconviences of our renovation projects. We trust that these projects will enhance our hotel to those future travelers.

    What a wonderful hotel!


    What a wonderful hotel staff! From the sales and catering staff to the front desk staff, I would recommend this hotel to anyone! They all did a fantastic job!

    Friendly Service


    The hotel is certainly not posh, but a good value for the money. It could use a little "sprucing up", but all in all was what we would expect for what we paid. The best part was the friendly service.

    Everyone we came in contact with was anxious to please. The breakfast coupons were a great value -delicious. With a rental car, we had no problems getting anywhere we wanted to go.

    Needs lots of repairs


    Lobby is impressive but rooms need reparis and paint, poorly lighted, swimming pool missing tiles, hot bath not working, and exterior of place in need of paint. No questions asked when you leave. I would not stay there again.



    Lobby is beautiful and impressive, our room was neither. There were problems with our TV (they were fixed quickly), the air conditioner was very noisy, the bathroom was dingy and while we were close enough to walk to the downtown area, the neighborhood made us very uncomfortable after dark. We will not be staying there again until the rooms are upgraded.

    Had about as easy a travel day as it is possible to have in the post-911 air travel nightmare era . We were selected for TSA pre-check, which means we get to go through the old style scanner (not the peer-through-every-molecule-of-your-bod y one), we don't have to take laptops out of bags, and we don't have to take off jackets or shoes. We were …

Everyone agreed and off we went with a John Denver album playing while driving down a "country road...Rocky Mountain High, Colorado." Idaho Springs is about 30 minutes from Denver and the cutest little town. Loved it. Reminded us of Gardiner Montana a little bit. We got there just as Beau Joes was opening. We ordered ourselves a pizza on recommendation ...

We walked upstairs and were met with some 20 town folks standing in line. It was the beginning of the 9th Anniversary of Jake & Tally's Greek Restaurant, and all of them were waiting for the “go” signal to start the festivities! This place has a following! and ...

    Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo

    After our trip to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center we opted to go to the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo. That rodeo has been held for some 70+ years. I remember going to it several times when I was growing up while it was still held in the stadium by the Broadmoor hotel. These days it is held in the much newer Norris Penrose Events Center.

    When we arrived, the first thing that caught the kid's eyes was ...
